i would not purchase so many inverts. 30 turbo snails is like 25 too many for a 75 IMO.
65 crabs is also ridiculous. get a few crabs and snails because you like to look at them. water changes, good flow, and an algae scraper will take care of the "cleaning up".
buy that many inverts and many of them will starve to death.

He doesn't really bother anyone. He will chase off the tang when she tries to force him to clean her. When we got the cleaner shrimp he shooed her out of his cave a couple of times to show her who was boss. But other than that he roams about the tank likes he owns it and doesn't bother anyone at all. I've heard all kinds of horror stories about how mean they are but he is huge, about 6 inches. So unless he gets cranky with age, we have no trouble at all. I've never seen him even notice the peppermints. Everyone has their own certain space, they don't really interact much. He can't fit into the small areas.

Oh and no... The flatworm isn't one of the red planaria pests you are referring to. It's probably the "prettiest" thing in our tank. It's silvery with leopard looking spots. Saw it at the back of the tank one time and have never seen it since. Looked at hundreds of pics of flatworms and found one that looked close but it was an unidentified species. The vast majority of the flatworms are harmless and since we don't overfeed, don't have to worry about pest numbers too much.
